The rebirth of a Greek legend
Four Seasons Astir Palace Hotel Athens is set to redefine the luxury hotel market in Greece and the Eastern Mediterranean. Following a complete remodelling and renovation, this iconic Greek resort will once again dazzle one and all who come to savour the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea.
It is difficult to articulate just how big a deal this really is for Athens. Astir Palace is an institution that has transcended hospitality and tourism since the early sixties to become part of the fabric of Greek high society, politics and global celebrity. The sense of anticipation about its reopening is palpable in the community surrounding the resort but also among its competitor hotels who will once again have to contend with its awesome attraction for local and international visitors.
The arrival of Four Seasons in Athens is indeed a landmark development for the company and a statement of intent about how serious it is in operating top end leisure resorts in Europe.
Astir’s new owners have spared no cost in restoring this Aegean Goddess to every bit of her former glory and much more. The resort boasts not one but two hotel concepts, totalling 248 keys, eight eclectic food and beverage outlets and a myriad of luxury outdoor amenities including private pools, an exclusive beach, tennis academy, state of the art Spa and 58 luxury villas.
If you want to be part of this unique opportunity on the Greek Riviera, just 25 minutes from Athens, don’t wait, apply now!
